Tasting Notes:  The 500 Chevaux is a classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon:  muscular, naturally more tannic and built to age, yet with a plush and polished mouthfeel and lingering finish.


This voluptuous and concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon shows rich aromas of blackberry and créme de cassis that evolve into notes of violet and wild berry liqueur that continue on the palate.  Hints of espresso and dark chocolate with soft, savory notes of cigar box unfold in the background.  The wine is opulent, with firm structure and radiant tannins.


The name means '500 Horsepower' to recall an expertly-tuned Formula One racecar:  sleek, powerful and designed to express the gifts of our site with precision and finesse.
